The Exchange is changing platforms! Please read to continue receiving our messages [working links]


Dear subscribers to The Exchange:

I am happy to announce that our blog is moving platforms. For almost a decade, the Business History Conference has used Blogger to publish and archive posts. However, in early 2021, the blogging site announced that their email serving service would be terminated. In addition, we noticed that many of our subscribers had stopped receiving the blog’s emails, and our subscription provides very limited reporting. In agreement, the Electronic Media Oversight Committee, web administrator Shane Hamilton, and web editor Paula de la Cruz-Fernández decided to move our web blog from Blogger to our website.

We now write to you to request that if you wish to continue receiving announcements from the BHC, please subscribe here:


Interested people will be asked to log into their BHC’s account or open one, free. If you have questions, please email The Business History Conference <web-admin [at]> 

Through The Exchange, the BHC sends announcements and publishes a newsletter with interviews and news about recently published articles, readings from across the web, new podcast and video content of interest, and more. Subscribers and BHC members are welcomed to email web editor Paula de la Cruz Fernández to post announcements on the blog. Subscribers will receive weekly summaries of the blog's posts.

Informed by these developments, the 2022 Business History Conference will explore the diverse ways that entrepreneurs, firms, and organizations coped with complexity, uncertainty, and disruption over the long run. The Program Committee welcomes individual papers and session proposals that explore this theme. Submissions can a
